Marcos Baghdatis Forever!

Through the good and the bad, always my #1, no matter what the rankings say

He hit 7 double faults, was broken twice, and had to save another 7 break points against the 1564th ranked player Anderson

If the final doesn't include Tsonga and either Baghdatis or Ferrer, something is wrong.

Valiant effort from Anderson is what I'd say.

Confusing title, Kevin Anderson is by far the better known player and plays Ivo Minar tomorrow. It was Andrew Anderson (ranked 1500+ as mentioned) who Baghdatis had trouble with.

Harder than expected. But as it was the first match it's understandable.
